Look into your risk of developing cancer

Cancer screening tests look for signs of cancer before symptoms appear. Spotting them early can make treatment easier and increase the chances of successful treatment.

Our cancer screening checks with a GP are 30 minutes long. Your doctor will carry out a series of tests, chat through any worries you have and refer you for any follow-up assessments.

Is a cancer screening for me?

Our cancer screenings are designed for those without any symptoms. If you’ve already noticed a change or symptom, please see your GP or book a private GP appointment instead.

Signs to look out for can depend on the type of cancer, but generally involve the following:

  • a new lump in any area of your body, for example a breast lump or testicular lump
  • unusual bleeding, such as in pee, vomit, or poo (stool), and vaginal bleeding between periods or after sex
  • unexplained weight loss
  • fatigue
  • very heavy night sweats or fevers
  • a change in bowel habits
